Share this article

  • BONK’s price declined massively over the last few days.
  • Social volume and sentiment around the token declined.

Bonk [BONK] saw a large surge in popularity and price over the last few months. However, the meme coin was also subject to a massive amount of volatility.

BONK struggles

BONK has not been favoring the bulls in recent times. In the last 24 hours alone, the price of BONK registered an 8.12% decline.

Examining the trend over the past few weeks revealed a pattern of lower lows and lower highs, suggesting a slightly bearish trajectory for BONK.

At the time of writing, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) for BONK recorded a value of 35.10.

This RSI level, below the typical threshold of 50, may indicate an oversold condition, reflecting increased selling pressure and potential further downside in the near term.

There has also been a decline in the Awesome Oscillator. This suggested waning momentum and may align with the observed negative price movements, adding to the overall bearish sentiment.

Losing popularity

The persistent decline in BONK’s value can be attributed, in part, to the diminishing social volume surrounding the token.

Given that a significant portion of a meme coin’s price dynamics is influenced by its popularity on social media platforms, the waning interest around BONK may contribute to its downward trajectory.

An analysis conducted by AMBCrypto on Santiment’s data revealed a substantial decrease in BONK’s Weighted Sentiment.

This indicated a considerable imbalance, with negative comments significantly outnumbering positive ones over an extended period.

Such negative sentiment prevailing on social media may exert additional downward pressure on BONK’s price in the foreseeable future.

Moreover, there has been a 4.99% decrease in the trading volume of BONK over the last 24 hours, resulting in a total volume of $87.17 million.

This decline in trading activity suggests a potential reduction in market interest and participation, further contributing to the challenges faced by BONK in maintaining its value.

Traders also exhibited waning interest in the token, as indicated by Coinglass’ data, which showed a growth in the percentage of short positions against BONK.

This shift in sentiment towards shorting suggested that many in the crypto market were losing faith in the token at press time.
